Saint Augustine's Organ

Here is the organ with separate patches for Swells, Grands and Pedals so you can easily play them on separate keyboards for that real organ feel. Note these don't have the samples included, you still need to download them from the link above.

Note that when you start the organ there will be NO sound you must choose an organ stop. The left side controls the light blue keys, the right side the dark blue keys and the two bottom buttons are the green keys.  The upper buttons are the Swells, the lower button the Greats and two lowest buttons the Pedals. You can combine as many or as few 'stops' as you like.

Nick Appleton sampled the organ of St. Augustine's Anglican Church, Neutral Bay. I've turned it into an instrument for Kontakt 5. On Nick's website he gives a lot of information about then organ including its specifications.

You can download the full license (also included in the instrument) here but the important bits are the organ can be used to perform works commercially and I can create Derivative Works and redistribute them non commercially.
